Is Your Loved One Being Abused & Mistreated?
Portland Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Most nursing homes do an excellent job of taking care of family members
entrusted to them for care. When you have a family member who can no longer
take care of themselves without some assistance and needs to be in a nursing
home, most individuals will carefully select a facility they feel will
take good care of their loved ones and provide them with dignity and respect.
Sadly, this is not always the case. In Portland there are hundreds of
patients in nursing homes that are mistreated or neglected on a daily
basis. Nursing home abuse can occur in many ways, some which include:
- Bed sores;
- Incorrect or no medication;
- Multiple falls;
- Intentional assault;
- Wandering outside facility - lack of oversight; and
- Wrongful death
